Thanks for the info.

See the wavy lines outward from the stipe?

Not exact, but suggestive. Not even enough to be a bolete, which is usually evenly covered with Hypomyces. (Hypomyces covers tubes evenly and completely. It also grows very, very quickly.) See MO 70211, 14686, 4789, 286, 287 (Hypomyces chrysospermum).

If you are speaking of the stipe apex I’d have to agree with you that this portion looks like gills. What else did you see that helped you come to this conclusion? Looking for info. Thanks.

Host looks more like a gilled mushroom

Looks like

the asexual stage of Hypomyces chrysospermus or possibly H. chlorinigenus. Just guesses at best.

So an ID is quite hopeless then?

My guess is this is a pored mushroom…

that’s been parasitized by a hypomyces.
